Happy Halloween


Still waiting and I have totally let myself get sucked in. RQ has the rumor for the cutoff date to be the 8th currently rated as a R3. I still don't feel safe though. I had to work today too. Silly me! I thought it would get my mind off things. Not so much :) 12 hrs I suffered. I checked my email and the RQ site every time I had a break. I also emailed my agency this morning. Told them what I had heard and asked what they thought. I got a maybe from them basically. Said they would know for sure later this week or next???? Tell me something I don't already know........ I am off tomorrow and Friday so I can surf the rumors at will. I hope we hear something more concrete by then.
Finally a big THANKS to all of you for continuing to post encouraging comments:) I didn't know this would be so hard. Your words are really helping me hang in there! It is so nice to all be in this together and I wouldn't have it any other way.

O.K. Jenny! BACK AWAY FROM THE CANDY!! This wait when you're soooo close is just the killer isn't it?? I'm pretty sure that I won't get my referral this month, but we're sure rooting for YOU!!! You're in for sure. If you're not I'll eat my pom poms. I could use the fibre anyway.

Well I'd better go back and practice my cheers for when you get the good new.

Thinking of you on a hourly basis.

(((hugs)))

Hello Jenny! I've seen your profile on comments on my other favourite blogs, and thought it about time, I called in to say hello!! I've swung by from i-Con's place, hope you don't mind!

Buckle up, babe, the your own personal rollercoaster is about to turn "xtreme".

Meanwhile, what plans have you made for "the call"? It might just be time to start obsessing about that. Write out a few Q's. consider having a close friend present to film it, etc. Like many, I got NO WORK done during the week or so before my referral, so you're in good company.

Whatever the outcome, find joy in it. It si so down to the wire that if you don't get it this time, you will DEFINITELY get it next.

Hang in there, we're all routing for you!

Hi been following your blog for a while now and I can only guess who excited and stressed you are! I hear an American agency has confirmed to clients the cut-off for them is the 8th December! :) Really keeping my fingers crossed you will see your baby's face soon!

I think we are all on pins and needles for you! I've been checking the RQ daily as well ... ugh!

Good Luck.. we are praying for you.

You're so in...the question is WHEN will you get THE CALL!!

You know, you won't need a huge list of questions for your agency. They'll tell you what you need to know during the call. Abby's CN, b-date, SWI, province, and very general information about her favorites.

That whole long list o'questions you see floating on various lists -- your agency probably won't have answers to most of those questions.

But here's a hint: find something to write on that you want to keep FOREVER -- maybe a cute piece of paper with ladybugs, perhaps? Cause you'll scribble down all of the above information, and you will want to have it for Abby's baby book someday.

Me? I was in the car and the only piece of paper I could find was one of those ATM envelopes -- you know the kind, with colored type and logos printed all over it. Not the best piece of "memorabilia" for the scrapbook, I'd say!

You sure you're ready for this??!!

You must be over the top!! :)

I keep checking RQ and am dying to see 100% if you are in, It is still saying Dec 8th is the cut-off.
Wow what a nail biter!!!

Stephe said...

Are you freaking out? Are you okay? Do you think you'll see Abby today?????? I keep checking and waiting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fingers crossed!

Truly Blessed said...

FWIW....

I think Abby will be 7 1/2 months old (born in April '07). She will weigh in at 14.4 lbs at on the referral papers, and will be at a SWI in Jiangxi Province.

I can't wait to see how my guesses match up!
